Completely revised and small enough to fit in a lab coat pocket, these reviews for subjects tested on the USMLE Step 1 feature 500 board-style questions, including many in clinical vignette format, with answers and explanations. All questions are reviewed by recent USMLE Step 1 test-takers.
As you begin your study of psychology, you
will find that it is different from any of your other
classes. This is because psychology is connected
to both the social sciences, such as history or
economics, and the natural sciences, such as
biology and chemistry. As a social science, psychology
explores the influences of society on
individual behavior and group relationships. As a
natural science, psychology looks for biological
explanations for human behavior.
Clinical course of CLL is variable. Recently, progress has been made in the identification of
biological markers that could predict disease progression. Particularly, the expression of
unmutated Ig genes, some cytogenetic abnormalities like 17p and 11q deletions and the
expression of the zeta-associated protein 70 (ZAP-70) are associated to a poor prognosis.
There is, of course, some potential overlap within these sub‐sectors, and some activities could fall
within more than one of the three main categories. For example, Additional Energy Sources could
potentially fall within the Renewable Energy sector, but has been include within Emerging Low Carbon
because it includes mainly new energy sources and those that are still in development (such as
hydrogen fuel cells).
The two maquiladoras in our sample were selected on the basis of two criteria: (i) each is
reputed to be a leading industrial source of air pollution, and (ii) the detailed technical data
needed to estimate their emissions are available. Some brief additional explanation may be
We began the process of selecting maquiladoras for this study with a list of Paso del
Norte’s leading industrial sources of air pollution, compiled from informal information provided
by local stakeholders. We used U.S.
Students with disabilities have the responsibility of contacting the DSO as soon
as possible after they have filed their intent to enroll with the University. A staff
member will assist students in putting together a disability-related documentation
packet for review, and will set up an intake interview for students with the director
in order to assess their needs. Students’ documentation should be sent to the DSO
either by fax or by regular mail as soon as possible before the first semester of
enrollment at Pepperdine.
Disease is a fundamental aspect of the human condition. Ancient
bones tell us that pathological processes are older than humankind’s
written records, and sickness still confounds our generation’s
technological pride. We have not banished pain, disability,
or the fear of death, even if we die on the average at older ages,
of chronic and not acute ills, in hospital or hospice beds, and not
in our own homes. Disease is something men and women feel.
It is experienced in our bodies—but also in our minds. Disease
demands explanation; we think about it and we think with it.
The purpose of this book is to investigate the medical interactions which
occur between a variety of healthcare professionals and women who
have experienced domestic violence. This relates specifically to the
medical profession as opposed to other professionals who are accessed
as part of wider help-seeking activities.
Magical describes conditions that are outside our understanding of cause and effect.
What cannot be attributed to human or natural forces is explained as magic: super-human,
super-natural will. Even in modern societies, magic-based explanations are powerful because,
given the complexity of the universe, there are so many opportunities to use them.
The history of medicine is defined by progress in understanding the human body –
from magical explanations to measurable results.
“The study of economics does not seem to require any specialized gifts of an
unusually high order. Is it not, intellectually regarded, a very easy subject
compared with the higher branches of philosophy or pure science? Yet good, or
even competent, economists are the rarest of birds. An easy subject, at which few
excel! The paradox finds its explanation, perhaps, in that the master-economist
must possess a rare combination of gifts. He must reach a high standard in several
different directions and must combine talents not often found together.
In July, 2005, Congress passed the Energy Tax Incentives Act of 2005 (the “Act”). Among a
number of other tax incentives, the Act permits State and local governments, cooperative electric
companies, clean renewable energy bond lenders and Indian tribal governments to issue “clean
renewable energy bonds” (“CREBs”) to finance certain renewable energy and clean coal facilities. Part
I of this article addresses the mechanics of issuing CREBs, including those projects that may be
financed through the issuance of CREBs.
Systems biology and its usage of mathematical modeling to analyse biologi-cal data is rapidly becoming an established approach to biology. A crucial
advantage of this approach is that more information can be extracted from
observations of intricate dynamics, which allows nontrivial complex expla-nations to be evaluated and compared.
Despitein vitro demonstrations of non-enzymatic morphogenetic functions
in acetylcholinesterase (AChE), the AChE knockout phenotype is milder
than might be expected, casting doubt upon the relevance of such functions
in vivo. Functional redundancy is a possible explanation.
Various hypotheses have been advanced to explain the high prevalence of mental health problems
during the perinatal period, ranging from biological (e.g., hormones and neurochemical
modifications) to psychological (e.g., personality types and ways of thinking) and social
determinants (e.g., gender disparities in access to education and income-generating opportunities,
social roles, disproportionate burden of unpaid work, exposure to family violence, low autonomy,
poverty and coincidental adversity) explanations.
MUH-HE-KUN-NE-TUK—the River That Flows
BothWays. Native Americans revered the river and
defined themselves by it for at least twelve millennia.
Early European explorers and colonists renamed
it many times: Mauritius; River of the Mountains;
North River; Hudson River. It has been called America’s
Rhine. Those who have lived or traveled along
it, worked upon it, defended it, or simply beheld it,
have valued this river out of all proportion to its
meager 315 mile length.
The ergodic hypothesis, which assumes the independence of each cell of the
ensemble from all the others, is a necessary prerequisite to attach single cell
based explanations to the grand averages taken from population data. This
was the prevailing view about the interpretation of cellular biology experi-ments that typically are performed on colonies of billions of cells.
There is not a specific identifiable cause of mental health disorders that serves as an explanation
for every child across all circumstances. Mental health issues are currently understood to be
caused by the interaction between genetic and environmental factors that include: inherited traits,
biological factors, life experiences and brain chemistry.
There are, however, some factors that have been shown to have particular impact children’s
social, emotional and mental health. They include:
